About this item

This guide outlines what mental health, social work, nursing, and medical professionals need to know about the legal system and their role in it when working with victims of interpersonal violence, neglect, and abuse. It first provides an overview of the criminal and civil justice systems and federal and state laws, legal cases, and other aspects of the legal system, including family law, child protective services and juvenile court, and voluntary and involuntary mental health treatment, then addresses practical and procedural law issues related to being a witness in court and seeing clients and patients in a clinic, including confidentiality and privilege, malpractice, and ethical violations. The book concludes with discussion of how interpersonal violence, abuse, and neglect are proven in court and the roles clinicians play. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
